"A beautiful temple"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 19, 2016
It is a beautiful temple where you can see the faces of 3 Goddesses Lakshmi, Kali, Saraswati. There are steps to climb, bit difficult for the Senior Citizens. Fridays and Tuesdays there is rush. In the afternoon the Goddess is given Bhog(food offerings). During Navratri there is a fair for 9 days with fun. Though extremely crowded in those days the arrangements are well made and well organised. Flower vendors and sweet shops supply fresh flowers and sweets for offerings.

"A small and well-maintained temple"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Mar 29, 2016
This is the well known temple in mumbai along with siddhi vinayaka temple. And "I visit this temple in my every visit to Mumbai in order to get blessed by the goddess" none other than "Mahalakshmi devi". And this temple is very close to the beach and very "near to the Haji Ali Dargah" and the nearest station is the "Mahalakshmi station". Every visitor to this temple will have a good sea view all through the travel to the temple. This temple comprises of "Maha lakshmi, Maha saraswathi, Maha kali goddess". This temple will be crowded at the time of "Navaratri and mondays" so it is recommended to go to the temple early morning and to have quick darshanam without any hassle in by with que. And this temple is neatly maintained by the local people in shifts itself.

"The place is very peaceful and calm"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 29, 2016
It is the one of the oldest temple in Mumbai, which enshrines Goddess Mahalakshmi, Maha saraswathi and Maha kali. The temple is very close to the Haji Ali dargah. Though we have to climb number of steps here, The place is very peaceful and calm over there. By climbing small stairs on temple left leads to two small temples of shri Ganesha and Shri Hanumanji. The temple gives the beautiful view of the Arabian sea. Temple will be crowded on friday usually. The Navratra, month of Margashirsha draw a large number of devotees. Finally I recommend all the people who are going to visit Mumbai to visit this temple also for sure.

"Good but poor management"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Mar 16, 2016
Temple is usually crowded, no proper management of crowd. Male and female have different line. So anyone who is new to Bombay chance of getting lost is high. Mahalakshmi Idol and temple is beautiful.

  • 5.0/7

Mahalaxmi Temple is situated near peddar road which is one of the costliest area in Mumbai. Temple is beautiful. This temple was built in 1831 by Dhakji Dadaji. Near this temple there is Haji Ali Dargah, race course. Must visit place for everyone.

"One of the Oldest Temple of Mumbai"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jan 28, 2016
During December (Margashirsha), it is visited most considering the fasting month of Maharashtrians. It is a place with great management and no issue in getting to the main temple.

"Goddess of wealth has blessed this city of opportunities for all"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 3, 2015
Early morning walk from Mumbai Central west side took us to this famous Temple of Mahalaxmi near Haji Ali sea face. The doors had still not opened and pics are not allowed inside this much revered temple of Goddess of wealth Laxmi. The charm is icons of Power-Shaktee, Wisdom and Wealth all the three are worshiped together here giving all a message! We recited the Kanakdhara stotraa here praying for peace, will power to work till end and whatever material rewards what She (Goddess) bestows on us. Had a blissful time, there is a way behind the temple where one can sit on rocks as sea waves dash against them. But 26-11 has changed it all as high security is taking its toll. How much we Indians are spending on these! Divine place, a must see triad along with SiddhiVinayak Ganesha Temple Mumba Devi local deity temple and Babulnath Shiva temple on the hill nearby. You will forget that you are in sucha bustling city which never sleeps. Banganga reservoir ahead too is a must go Ram temple.

"An old and famous temple"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Jul 23, 2015
Very old & famous temple, it is in south Mumbai and close to Haji ali. Temple is always crowded but darshan can be done for long time. There is rush but members are not pushed to come out. After darshan one will not miss to have vada at the downstairs behind it. Very famous vada stall /restaurant available with a scenic Arabian sea view.
